AGREEMENT

The user realizes that the use of the Internet is a privilege, not a right. The user accepts that inappropriate behavior will lead to penalties revoking computer use and/or legal action may be taken against them.

The user will not send, receive or display text or graphics that may be reasonably construed by Library Staff as offensive to the public or transfer inappropriate or illegal materials through the Riverdale Public Library's Internet connection. Materials representing treason or libel (as proven in court) or pornography (as established by ordinance such as the Cook County Ordinance Prohibiting Child Pornography) shall reasonably be consider offensive to the public.

The user understands that the Library Staff, while respecting the users' right to privacy, reserves the right to monitor use of the Internet workstation to insure compliance with this policy. In the case of minor children, the parent/legal guardian assumes all liability for the minor's access to inappropriate sites.

The user agrees to pay any cost associated with the repair or replacement of equipment or software damage or by a minor for whom they are responsible.

The user agrees and acknowledges that the Riverdale Public Library assumes no liability for any loss or damage to data. Files saved to the hard drive will automatically be erased at the end of the user's login.

The user agrees to read and abide by the Riverdale Public Library's Public Internet Policy and Agreement.
